September 30, 2015 // Franchising.com // IRVINE, California – Juice It Up!, a premier raw juice bar and hand-crafted smoothie franchise, announced same-store sales were up seven percent over the previous year’s third quarter. The company saw an uptick in average unit volume and the number of stores opened on average was up five percent over last year.
